Default Downloading 330M drivers

Hiya,

I need to download the 330M drivers for linux 64-bit, but when I try to from the nvidia site I get a file open in browser with this near the top (after agreeing to T&C's)

' NVIDIA Driver Installation .run file
#
# If you were trying to download this file through a web browser, and
# instead are seeing this, please click your browser's back button,
# left click on the link, and select "Save as..." (or do whatever is
# appropriate for your web browser to download a file, rather than view....'

I have tried this but I cant get any options. I have tried two computers (linux - firefox).

Any ideas? Is it a problem with the website?

Options?

When you see that text it means the driver is being downloaded and displayed as mixed text and binary in your browser (NVIDIA's download server never did serve up sensible MIME types to help the browser realise this).

You just right click on "Agree to Download" (not on Download; on the second page) and choose "Save Link As..." in Firefox. Alternatively, direct links to the drivers can be found in a thread stickied at the top of this forum.
